The metal heater shroud didn't workout as planned. It was far to heavy and oversized I made a plastic cover with a 3in outlet. It fits in the passenger side footwell and doesn't look bad either. Needs some ducting from the outside of the car. Fan maybe overkill lol.

Here it is in its mounted position. I've been working on this for a long while and overall it meets all of my requirements. Thin and cheap. I was happy to build it out of parts I already have.

As a plumber I recognize that outlet, I will let you tell everyone what it is.

Hint: it's intended for a room in which you can sit and ponder.

Lots of little updates. The car now has headlights and turn signals. Turn signals are a dual filament from a harley and headlights are 5 3/4 jobbers. I'm working on reducing the rear shock mounts as they weren't adjusted for droop correctly, no pictures yet. Next I'm moving the battery to the engine bay to make room for my new heater. I brought a zirgo golbi heater from newegg for $65 with shipping. It's very compact and will live where the battery was mounted under the scuttle. Also mounted the horns and added an x brace to the front of the chassis.Progress has been slow but I haven't given up. Still get an hour or two a week to work on it.
Also added a clutch pedal which was made from a modified s2000 assembly.
